Designing Stable Structures

Welcome to Year 3's wonderful structure designs.

Having looked at a range of real photo frames, we decided to experiment with what a standing structure has to have. We used card, lego, kinex and straws to make a piece of floppy paper stand up. 'Strong' shapes like triangles and rectangles were found to work well, and when a problem was found - we made changes to fix it.

Enjoy! (we did).
